Everybody must re-audition each year. The purpose: to re-engage and show the student's growth and commitment. Each year we lose our eighth graders because they age out of The Ensemble, leaving openings for new students.
Auditions for The Ensemble are typically in May or June for the coming school year.
We do not announce the show until we have chosen our group. The December show is announced in August, the May show is announced in December.
We hire professional choreographers to choreograph our shows.
We have a live accompanist at all of our rehearsals.
Every student is given 2 comps per semester for the show.
Included in your tuition are two T-shirts, one for each production
We do not recommend auditioning a cappella. We hire a live accompanist for our auditions. Please bring sheet music in your key, properly mark it, and put it in a binder.
Please bring a picture and resume to your audition with contact info on it. The picture does not have to be professionally done. A picture is typically 8 x 10, but again, it does not have to be 8 x 10.
